Great olde time war time recording
This sounds great considering it is 90 years old and was probably recorded with just a mic or two. the band isn't as apparent on the recording as the lead singer is, but this song sounds very much like the songs they play over the old war movies from that golden era of the early 1900's. No hiss, no pops, really well preserved! Great little gem from history.

This is FABULOUS!
This is absolutely fabulous! My Mom was born in 1911 and she still had many, many 78 rpm records when I was old enough to listen to them and one of them was bound as a book with several record in it and it had as many waltzes as I knew existed. They were wonderful and so is your site. Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing this bit of history back to a generation that may or may not appreciate it, but at least they are aware of such recordings!

It's a long way...
This is a classic song.. Not too sure about the performer here though. Oh well.
The chorus sounds like Billy Murray is in it somewhere..

Typical recording of its time.
Typical recording made during the W.W.I era.

Quality of the recording is great. It is also one of the true "Golden Oldies" very oldie like some of us.

Great quality recording considering the technology of the time. This recording must have been preserved very well.

Absolutely fantastic and well worth downloading if you want to listen to the original song in its original form.

I always associate this song with World War II, not the First World War, which is when this recording was made.
Well recorded with resonable fidelity considering it was recorded totally accoustically.
